Decorate with Thrift Store Books
Do you ever see those piles of old books at thrift stores and wonder what the heck you could do with them? I love to buy books at thrift stores. I love to use them as decorative items in my home. And you can use the book pages to create awesome home decor pieces. I am going to show you how to decorate with thrift store books.

Keep in mind, I am not going to tear book pages out of a book that holds value or is highly sought after. I think by taking an old book that otherwise would have ended up in a dumpster, I am giving it a new life.
For this project I created some simple book page paper rolls.
I cut the pages out of the book and rolled them up.
I added a small dab of hot glue to the paper to hold in in place.
I then tied a piece of twine around the book page roll. I ended up adding them to a large mason jar I had also found at a thrift store.
I love to decorate with thrift store books and this is an easy way to add some unique farmhouse decor to your home for literally almost nothing.
Don’t the book page rolls look pretty inside the mason jar?
I think I may make some more to use in other places in my home. I’ve said it before, I will say it again. Thrift store upcycle projects do not have to me dramatic, completely life altering projects. They can be simple, and easy, and quick. I love working on easy projects that add a lot of impact for a small amount of effort. Decorating with thrift store books is definitely a great way to do that.
And now for more thrifty goodness!
